Topic: My mom crossed the river

I last posted here in May about my mom's diagnosis so it is only fair to let you nice folks know that she passed beyond this life last night. She was unable to speak for the last week, but she clearly knew we were there because when we said we were leaving she reacted physically. This declined of course, but Mom was still with us up to the last moments of her life.

You were all so kind and compassionate when I first found you and I want to thank you for that. It has been a rough month for Mom, so hopefully she is in a better place right now.

Thank you all for your kindness and support. God bless you and take care.

Thank you all so much for your kindness. I very much appreciate it. You are good people, willing to comfort others like me while feeling your own pain. I am truly touched. Thanks again and I'll stop by, for both your wonderful emotional support and hopefully to provide mine for others going though this.

I want to send you my sincere condolences as well on the passing of your mother.  Our loved ones are never truly gone as they live on in our hearts and memories.  Cherish those memories in the future as you handle your grief.  Mothers will always hold the hearts of those they loved.
